Marlins schedule news conference; introduction of Guillen as manager expected
MIAMI (AP) ' Ozzie Guillen is expected to be introduced as the Florida Marlins' manager at a news conference before their final game of the year.
The team scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon before their last game in the stadium where they've played since their first season in 1993.
Guillen's website leaked the news late Monday that he had agreed to become the Marlins' manager, and he tweeted Tuesday that he was in Miami and "ready to go." Team officials have declined to comment.
Manager Jack McKeon said Monday he planned to retire at the end of the season. Hours later, Guillen announced he was leaving the Chicago White Sox after eight seasons, including a run to the World Series title in 2005.
